Kansas company recalls male supplement for containing actual drugs
An Overland Park company is recalling supplements sold for male sexual enhancement because they contain prescription drugs.
Epic Products LLC announced a voluntary recall of its Euphoric capsules after an analysis by the Food and Drug Administration found they contained two prescription drugs — sildenafil and tadalafil — that are used to treat male erectile dysfunction. The presence of the drugs makes Euphoric an unapproved drug, according to a release.
Epic sold Euphoric in one-count blister cards, three-count bottles and 12-count bottles at retail stores. The company has discontinued sales of the products.
A primary concern is that users of the unapproved drug who also take nitrates for diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol or heart disease could suffer a fatal cardiovascular collapse. Epic claims it has not received any reports of adverse reactions to the product.
More information on the recall can be found on the FDA website.
